Dangerous waters comparing Furthur to The Grateful Dead. But why not? Anyone upset by the idea is taking it all at least a little too seriously.

Furthur played the best Jack Straw I've ever seen 9/24/11 in Eugene (a close personal 2nd best to see was Deer Creek 6-6-91).


Listen to the Furthur version with headphones on and eyes closed, thinking about Europe '72 if you dare.

The 9/24/11 one is MUCH better.

That's a great version. Definitely better than some GD Jack Straws I've heard. Hey strat, this one is certainly not lacking in verve!

I guess I agree it is qualitatively better, but it's sort of a tough call. I like the *sound* of GD Jack Straw better. This is pleasant, but it's still not the GD. I mean, I'd take a poor GD Jack Straw over a good Furthur one.

We seem to be reaching a vague consensus that Furthur is better than very-late-era GD.
